Happy December to you all! With the holidays hovering over us, we scramble around trying to figure out what to present as a present. How 'bout a gift certificate for your favourite coffee shop? But wait... Hold on! In addition to the usual $5 and $10 Mercury Espresso Bar Gift Certificates, we'll be selling cerificates for our first in a series of Coffee Education and Cupping Classes. For $60 you can get that caffeine crazed friend or family member one of 10 spots open on Tuesday January 26, 2010 at 7pm. The course will include a journey that takes you from the cherry to the cup. We'll be discussing growing and harvesting, processing(and how each process is integral to the cup), and of course a tasting! We'll sample 6 coffees prepared in 3 different ways. Not to mention a few interesting tidbits along the way. Of course you'll also take some top notch coffee home with you as well. You can share your new found knowledge with anyone who'll listen. Come on down and let us know how many you want and we'll hook you up. Again, the date of the first class is Tuesday January 26, 2010 @ 7pm. We'll be doing a regular series of these classes and each time we'll focus on coffees that are in season at that time. Can't wait to see you there!
